Give Thanks : Catch the Thankfulitis

How 'bout that snow, eh , guys?!!



It's that time of year again to eat till your pants cause a serious pain in your lower abdomen and when naps are a must. A time where people come together and bring odd dishes like jello molds and cheap wine. Tomorrow, my pals, is Thanksgiving!



I could eat a Thanksgiving meal 365 days a year without question. It's my favorite, especially the way my Mom makes it because no one ever makes it like dear ole' Ma. I just love getting together… Continue

Conversation with my son

Every weekend my kids want to have company come over. I'm always reminding them that I don't have a built in card in my brain that automatically stores the contact information for everyone I meet, and neither do they, so they need to physically exchange numbers with their friends. Do they? No, but every weekend we seem to have…

Who are you talking to?

There are certain things all parents get used to: Lack of privacy, interrupted sleep, toys underfoot and (at least in our household) excessive talking.…

Why #ichoose Scentsy

Before I joined Scentsy I was struggling working 2 jobs and practically homeless. After some mis-communication over parking tickets my husband and I decided to work on our marriage. One of the things I made clear was that I wanted to be independent and continue to work from home, but also make money from home.  The kids were in daycare and my…

Oh! You have a blog?

I don't broadcast my blog as much as I probably should. So, when I do mention it to friends or families and give a brief explanation of what it is about (news that all parents could use), I usually get one of the following reactions:…

Milestones Are Not Set in Stone

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.



If you've recently celebrated a landmark birthday, you may be thinking about the milestones in your life. Crossing from one personal decade into another is a significant event and takes on a life of its own. Connecting with friends who are also making this transition can help focus on what you've gained over the years – memories, perspective, wisdom – rather than on what you've lost – agility, some energy, your youth!…

No Need to Hibernate All Winter

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.



Were you too busy on Super Bowl Sunday watching the commercials to notice that groundhog Punxsutawney Phil had emerged from his burrow? He saw his shadow and went back in to hibernate predicting that the blistery winter weather much of the country has been experiencing will last for another six weeks.



For many of us, winter weather does seem to drag on longer than we'd like. And being stuck at home in February and…

I'm a Hypocrite

That's right folks. I'm a great big hypocrite. I have been so absorbed in my life and my worries over the last few years that I have forgotten about others. One of my posts from earlier talked about a friend who wasn't there for me when she said she would be. It hurt me, but I realized today that I have not been an emotional support to others much either.



I had a friend in college, Amy. She was a beautiful girl, but struggled with her self esteem. It hurt me to watch her in her… Continue

The Salt and Ice Challenge – Kids Are Using Table Salt and Ice to Cause Painful Burns to Their Skin

Yesterday afternoon when my son got into the car, he was asking his sister if she ever put salt on ice.  I didn’t realize that he was talking about putting the salt and ice combination on his skin.  I just assumed that his science teacher was teaching them about temperature changes using salt and ice.  Then this afternoon, I noticed a huge red spot…

Make New Friends But Keep The Old?

I cannot be the only one...who has suspected that their long time friendships may have turned into something other than actual friendships over the many, many years that we have known each other. This is something I have been thinking about for…

Road Trip!

It was a simple quest.



Andrew and I were going to take a relatively quick 5 1/2 hour road trip to the Capital District so we could get India from college for the summer. 



But someone had decided her van wouldn't make the 30° grade of the Driveway From Hell over the winter and parked it. Not in the barn on the hill, where it would be protected. Nooo.  I parked her in the driveway and let her sit - under 3 feet of snow…

My Straight, Gay BFF

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

Many women seek a gay man as a BFF for several reason including, but not limited to: the security of male companionship without worrying about sexual advances, harmless flirting with no expectations, and total honesty to relationship insights. I have all of these BFF qualities with my friend, Jordan, except that he’s straight. Jordan and I met in college, where we…

Boy, the times have surely changed!

Yesterday, I found myself reminiscing. I was thinking about and appreciating my childhood, old friends and every experience good or bad. I remember going outside to play with my friends. We all had Nintendo and Sega Genesis systems, but those were only played when we had company come over who didn't have their own systems...or we had to be indoors. It wasn't as addictive as games seem to be now…

BFF

It's been more than four years since I have become a stay-at-home-mom, or SAHM, for short. The perks are aplenty but the downside to it is that your life literally revolves around your children's schedule, especially if you have little support from elsewhere.

Some friends are envious of my SAHM status, they say,…

Some Dreams Are Just To Bizarre To Explain

Sitting around with Matthew discussing prescription drug commercials and wondering about the various side-effects.



So many to choose from.  How do the patients know which to select? 




I mean, that's why they list them,…
